There is nothing more annoying than answering an “unknown” number to find a robot on the other side offering you something unsolicited. In this case, it was a “free cruise.”
A class action lawsuit against Resort Marketing Group (RMG) a company that made third-party robocalls on behalf of Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and Norwegian Cruise Lines, claimed that the calls violated Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
A settlement was reached in the case, last month, awarding a fund of at least $7 million and up to $12.5 million for eligible members.
People who received a robocall from the company between July 2009 and March 2014 are eligible to receive up to $300 per phone call for up to three phone calls. That puts the maximum claim at $900 per telephone number. If you have more than one phone, you can claim calls on up to three of them. That’s 3 x $900.
